Of the 17 measures we took positions on in this election year, 15 of them went our way! This included statewide propositions and local measures on everything from transportation funding to affordable housing, renter protections, and sidewalk repair. We worked especially hard to pass Measure RR, a bond that raised $3.5 billion to invest in repairing and improving BART's core system.
TransForm was very involved in getting BART to put a measure on the ballot in the first place, and finally do what we've been calling on the agency to do for years — fund the billions of dollars of maintenance work needed to keep the core system up and running safely and reliably. We worked closely with allied organizations, and community partners in Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco counties to pass Measure RR with more than 70% of the overall vote.
